This morning on a panel discussion on FOX I watched an interview about the response of the NFL to President Trump's comments on the "take the knee for the anthem" business. Oh, dear, it was suggested, was he too harsh? But I soon realized that in this controversy there is one thing that is not being discussed; it isn’t even being alluded to tangentially. This is the elephant in the room that everyone is trying their damnedest to ignore—that is, the race of most of those "taking the knee." I'm sure that there are players doing this who are not black, but I would say that the vast majority involved are black and those who are not, do so to placate their black teammates and not because they are particularly against the National Anthem. This huge fact, however, was never mentioned on FOX and I doubt very much if it ever will be. Ol' Kevin K. (who apparently started the whole thing) was simply called out for being “untalented” as if this was the reason for his behavior.
As also might be imagined, nobody is talking about the new race-based action by black players who, having brought down a white player, make the "black power" salute as if somehow they had accomplished something for blacks! This is akin to the natural response that baboons exhibit when they have bested an enemy—and that's scary! Given that most team sports (except hockey) are largely represented by minorities (blacks and Hispanics with the occasional Japanese thrown in) in far greater numbers than their percentage in the general population, this fatuous nonsense bodes ill for society in general and the sports world in particular. If this open hostility towards whites by blacks on the field—irrespective of their teams—continues, we are going to see played out in the sports arenas a mini-race war that spectators will have to pay a great deal of money to see! And since most of those buying tickets are white, one has to ask, will they—and, if so, why?
At this point I doubt very much that the owners and officials in football can do a great deal about what is happening except to support their very expensive and infantile players in hopes of keeping the seats filled (with whites) and their revenues up in order to pay those same expensive and infantile players. It's far easier to blame Donald Trump (and in doing so they will get all the media support one could wish!) than it is to admit to what is actually going on. I usually don't think that anything “sports” is all that important but I believe that this may represent a very "up front" launch of that "civil war" we have been promised by the left.
